The Lost Thing Family Concert
An Orchestral Adventure
The much-loved children's book The Lost Thing, by Australian illustrator and author Shaun Tan, has already been turned into an award-winning film. Now it becomes a magical concert experience, thanks to the music of acclaimed presenter and composer Paul Rissmann. This is a spellbinding tale of a boy who discovers a strange creature on the beach, and tries to find a place where it belongs.
This family-friendly concert is the ideal introduction to the Concert Hall. Experience the narrative of this beloved story as it is brought to life by Queensland’s finest musicians, live on stage. The show will also feature great classical music from Star Wars, Flight of the Bumblebee, Hungarian Dances and more, to demonstrate how composers can use an orchestra to create different feelings and sounds. If you’ve ever wanted to wow your kids with a full symphony orchestra, this show is for you.
